Hi, I've been looking for information online on swollen lymph nodes, and came across this. My situation is kind of complicated.. I've had swollen lymph nodes in my neck for almost 3 years. And I get follow-ups every 6 months. I also have tumors on my thyroid gland. I had a biopsy on one tumor and turned out not cancerous, which I was happy for! 6 months later I had another ultrasound and found a new tumor on my gland. That one is not tested yet. My lymph nodes are still very swollen (In my neck). I have about 5 swollen on one side and 2 on the other side. I also have a swollen node in my armpit. And I noticed my breast being very sensitive so I went to see my doctor and he sent me for an ultrasound, for my breast, armpit and neck. They found a little mass in my breast but he told me not to worry about it. The lymph nodes in my neck are still swollen from three years ago and one tumor on my gland got bigger. I don't know what to do anymore, I don't know what to think. I called my doctor for an appointment, and it's in 3 weeks. I'm tired of not knowing whats going on. I'm very worried for the swollen lymph nodes, it's been three years. Last time I seen my doctor, he told me to stop worrying for nothing and everything was okay. I guess because I'm 19 years old, he thinks I'm stupid and I shouldn't worry. So I want your opinion on it. And thanks in advance for taking the time :)!
